I just saw in my local paper a study submitted by The Lancet about nerve pain meds. Basically it said that the combination of the anticonvulsant gabapentin and the antidepressant nortriptyline worked better together than either alone.
Maybe if any of you are having problems with the nerve pain you can tell your Dr. about the study. The article said that The Lancet "recently posted the findings online".
Hope this can help someone.
